They treat front of house staff better than most restaurants.

I worked at Darden part-time for more than a year

ProsAlthough much of it depends on each stores management, Darden restaurants are largely supportive, flexible, understanding, and efficient. Great second job or "fill-in" income.

ConsSince customer satisfaction is number one, sometimes they over staff their shifts so no one can make any money and it's a big waste of time for half the staff who bothered to show up.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
